Contact faults are often the result of crimped insulation and missing strands. To eradicate issues of this nature and guarantee complete functionality, MicroForce 80 has been designed to monitor quality for every single crimp. The test device enables the processing chain to be meticulously analyzed and the measured values to be documented. Based on these results, processes can be optimized, faulty crimps can be minimized and traceability can be guaranteed in the production process. Installing the sensor is quick and easy. MicroForce 80 combines reliable, tried-and-tested technology with high quality processing.

Detailed analysis of crimping processz

MicroForce 80 enables a detailed analysis of the crimping process to be made with the minimum of effort. The sensor is bolted on to the frame of a crimping device or crimp module. It measures the force exerted by the pressing cycle on the frame. The results are prepared electronically, evaluated in the integrated software and shown on a 5” display. MicroForce 80 classifies each crimp as good or bad based on a comparison of the data with a reference curve.

Ideal conditions for high productivity

A great deal of time can be saved during changeovers thanks to the stored product data. All information required for production purposes – tolerance, batch size, learning crimp quantity, evaluation range, wire type and contact type – is immediately available at all times. This cuts out the need for complex and expensive manual work, which is vulnerable to human error.

Stable, documented process

MicroForce 80 enables the crimping process to be analyzed in detail and documented accordingly. The system presents the current crimping force curve, normal distribution and trend as a visual representation. Where required the process can be optimized using this information. Normal distribution provides information about the dispersion of the measured values. The series of measurements (encompassing up to 50 crimps) plots trends on the force curves and drifts if present.

Documentation of quality data

The results of the crimping force curve can be transferred to a storage medium via the USB interface. The machine-readable data can be used in various formats depending on requirements (Excel, Access). The data can also be fed back into a central system.

Intuitive touch and access rights

The intuitively designed touch display enables work to be carried out efficiently. Access to key functions can be protected via a password and predefined user access rights.
